Baked Potatoes To Angels

Each week we are blessed by volunteers who come to serve at Breakthrough during our community dinner.  This past Sunday we had, yet, another amazing team.  This week’s team set up a baked potato bar for our guests.  We piled the toppings of broccoli, chili, cheese, bacon, butter, and sour cream on high as the team lovingly served our guests.  We had a room full of those who are finding them in states of homelessness, poverty, or other brokenness.

“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all;”  Psalm 34:18-19

Following our meal, we had a special guest speaker from Wisconsin, Bruce Van Matta, who spilled his guts (literally) and told us his powerful testimony from the brokenness and destruction of his youth, to being saved by angels after being crushed almost in two by a semi-truck.  We were all on the edges of our seats listening to the power of Jesus Christ to not only physically and spiritually save someone, but to also use the life of someone to whom the world would consider foolish.  If the Lord can use Bruce, he most assuredly can use you!  We highly encourage you to visit Bruce’s ministry website and hear his powerful testimony.  (Visit our previous post for more inf0)

Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are,”  1 Corinthians 1:26-28
